(14) If an Order prohibiting the supply or use of milk is made against a dairyman he shall unless the Order has been made in consequence of his own default or neglect be entitled to recover from the responsible authority full compensation for any damage or loss which he may have sustained by reason of the making of the Order.

Lords Amendment: At the end of paragraph (14) insert the words: "The dairyman shall also be entitled to full compensation for any damage or loss which he may sustain in consequence of the responsible authority unreasonably neglecting or refusing to withdraw an Order made against him."

This is a Privilege Amendment, because it imposes a charge on the rates. The House will exercise its privilege on that matter and will not accept the Amendment. It is, however, open to the House to waive the question of Privilege and accept the Amendment.

I beg to move, "That Privilege be waived."

Question put, and agreed to.

Lords Amendment agreed to.

Further Lords Amendments considered, and agreed to.
